See if you've unchecked "Include in Compile" for any documents in your draft folder, as that will impact the Project Statistics word count.

If that's not it, you might want to unzip & rename one of your backup projects from prior to the word count decrease, and then compare the old and current projects side by side, to see if you can nail down where the difference is.
